    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    The Cafe on the Rec is a local gem that provides a valuable service for local families, while supporting young people into work, caring about the local homeless community and supporting Junior Parkrun to name but a few. Recently they were vandalised, so in order to continue playing such a vital local role they need to repair, protect and invest in useful items such as a marquee.

    The updated amount of £1366 is what it’ll take to buy security shutters for all the doors and windows + £136.60 justgiving fees, making it £1,502.60.

    So far I have run the 2018 London Marathon, cut off my long hair and run a raffle. I an currently foraging and making jams and pies for sale. All suggestions for ongoing fundraising are almost as welcome as your donations!

      What a bonkers loooong day! Can’t believe how much I improved on last year, including feeling much much better than how I ached this time last year. My baby toes are 80% blister right now with some other beauts coming along nicely! The rain didn’t stop us. Now for a super early night and thanks to all who have supported me with kind words and donations. Still not too late to bung me a quid or two, so close to target now!

      So it’s going to be raining tonight as I walk the midnight marathon. Worth sponsoring my heroic misery?!! We’re not far off reaching total so we can get these security shutters for the wonderful people at our community cafe. If you would like to track my progress this evening/tomorrow morning the link is: https://resultsbase.net/event/4437/tracking?utm_medium=email&utm_source=mcmp&utm_campaign=1234567&utm_content&utm_team=Shine+-+In+-+London+-+Good+Luck&urn=531024076&round=9980 And my number is 31726.

      Just one day to go until the epic Midnight Marathon Shine Walk (this was me last year with my lucky mascot ‘Speedy’). You can track my progress on this link with my number 31726. Last year it took me ten and a half hours due to the blisters on the soles of my feet, this year i’m aiming for 8 and a half. I’d really love to reach my target for The Cafe on the Rec so they can buy the security shutters they need to continue doing their super work for the community. Any donation (or pledge to buy jam/pies/etc) would be greatly appreciated!
